Where did I get my inspiration about this abstract sculpture gift?

This artwork entitled Helix is part of a solo exhibition on the theme of  the “circle”.

This show took place in a gallery in Athens on December 2008. The artist’s intention was to symbolize the concept of parallel worlds by creating two intersecting half-circles. Each circle has its own elements within. This geometrical parallelism is a metaphoric expression of what could be parallel worlds. This spire sculpture is aiming to convey the evolution of life.


Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.
Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.
Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) is one of Russia’s most famous artists and the founder of abstract art. His compositions have become iconic abstract art pieces around the world. Kandinsky took up painting by chance and rather late in life, when he was already 30 years old.
Abstract paintings can also be appreciated in terms of the individual elements of art: color, shape, line, texture, space, value, etc. An abstract artist’s skills lie in his or her ability to use colors and textures to their best visual strength and to create a sound composition from these elements.

History of ball bearings…

In 1869, Jules Suriray received a patent for a radial ball bearing to be fitted into metal bicycles. The success of the improved design led to the creation of several new types of metal ball bearings, all with different designs that were specially created for a particular machine.

It was Sven Winquist who came up with a self-aligning design for ball bearings that set a new standard in terms of design. A quick succession of innovations within the field emerged, from the wire race bearing to the vee groove bearing.
